This is stated in the joint investigation team of Alexei Navalny and the independent publication Proekt, Ukrinform reports.

According to investigators, among the most expensive objects are the estate in the Greenfield village (estimated value of $240 million) and the Millerhof estate ($97 million) in the Istra district of the Moscow region. These palaces were built by Gazprom’s main contractor, Stroygazconsulting, owned by Jordanian businessman Ziyad Manasir. The owner of “Millerhof” was LLC “All-People’s Farm Center”, which was recorded on the structures of Gazprombank. Then the company was taken over by the Cypriot Ridensi.

It is noted that Miller never entered Millerhof, possibly due to a scandal with publicity, so another palace was built for him, and the Millerhof estate is rented out for events and television.

In 2020, Estate-B sold the palace, but still continues to pay the bills for its maintenance. The names of the two new owners of the palace in the registry are classified and each is designated as “rf”. The conclusion that the family of the head of Gazprom lives in the palace was made by the investigators, among other things, on the basis of the fact that Gazprom’s Eurocopter helicopter, used by Miller, regularly flies to the helipad near the palace.

According to Navalny’s team, the palace in Greenfield from Possession-V was bought for 8 billion rubles by Marina Entaltseva, the former head of the protocol of the President of the Russian Federation and Miller’s common-law wife.
